Barber school opens in Cardiff

The Barbering School of Wales

Barbering School of Wales provides aspiring barbers with the opportunity to learn, explore, and master the art of barbering under the instruction of industry experts. Successful students will graduate after 9 weeks after completing a fast-track barbering course. During the design process, experienced barbers, qualified barbers, and industry experts consider several factors.

The Barbering School of Wales was founded by Alessandro Calliva of Capello Barbers. With over a decade of experience in the industry, he’s no stranger to the Cardiff barbering scene with shops located in Cathays, Pontcanna and Penarth. Students get an insider’s view of real-life barbershop life thanks to his experience and expertise.

BSW’s barber training courses include both practical and theoretical lessons. Classes are kept small with a maximum of six students per teacher to give all students the chance to get one-on-one attention. Those who attend the academy benefit from this approach since it makes training more effective and efficient.

There are currently four major courses offered by Barbering School of Wales, including the BSW barber course, NVQ Level 2 barber course, NVQ hairdresser to barber course, and BSW hairdresser to barber course.

The NVQ level 2 barber course consists of 9 weeks of theoretical and practical training and concludes with a class competition that will see students compete against each other to produce the best haircut, with the results counting towards the final grade.

In addition to these four main course types, BSW also offers 1-1 business mentoring, and in the future, they also plan on adding wet shaving and fading courses.

At first, BSW will offer a range of in-house training courses, but in the future, they will also offer online barber training courses. In addition to videos covering everything you need to become a barber, one-on-one video calls with tutors and other resources are included in the course.

Barbering School of Wales will open in Autumn at 26-27, St. Mary’s Street, Cardiff, CF10 1AB. If anyone is interested in switching to an exciting new career path that provides you with endless freedom and opportunities, get in touch on 07800 60 3365 or [email protected]
